Incoming Soldat de Plom 2015 in Girona

We are deep in the middle of what I call 'the contest season'. The time of the year filled with miniature and modeling events all over Europe. We've witnessed Euromilitaire a few weeks ago, as well as Scale Model Challenge and the mini Golden Demon called Space Marines that took place just this weekend. I've been so busy lately that I haven't had the chance to comment on them. I was even going to attend Golden Demon Space Marines myself, but then again, duty calls...

There's going to be a couple of events that even my busy job will not prevent me from attending. Let's talk quickly about the first of them.

The first one is in two weeks, in Girona (30th October - 1st November). Time for one of the veterans of the Spanish modelling scene, Soldat de Plom.

I've been to Soldat de Plom a couple of times. This year I was invited by the organization as part of the jury, so it will be an honour and a privilege to stand alongside Jose Palomares and Alfonso Giraldes (Banshee) and determine the winners of this edition.

I really recommend you guys to attend this year if you have the chance. For once, there will be very valuable seminars by Jose Palomares, Antonio Zapatero and Banshee:

And also, if you participate in the Fantasy section and you enter more than 5 entries, you will get a free copy of the figure 'Geriò'. It's a three headed giant that some of you may remember for the World Expo in Girona 2008. If you couldn't get one at the time, you can get it this time (there probably won't be another chance).

On the second event that I will not miss, I'll talk in another post. As well as a couple of local events that will take place here in Madrid... ;)
